This OSHA Injury Report was compiled directly from data that is publicly available from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA Injury Reports can be helpful in understanding the types of workplace injury claims involving defective products or malfunctioning equipment in the workplace. 

The manufacturers of defective equipment or machinery resulting in a worker injury may be found to be negligent and liable for damages in a separate civil lawsuit. You may be able to recover damages on top of a workers’ comp claim if injured in a job accident caused, in part, by a third party. These third party personal injury cases should be given responsible legal guidance.

Trammell Piazza Law Firm claims no responsibility for any errors or inconsistencies in OSHA’s data.

Report: Direct exposure to electricity, greater than 220 volts at BBC Electrical Services Inc. in Tulsa, Oklahoma

DATE: 03/08/19

Two employees were in the bucket of a bucket truck energizing a 13,800-to-2,400-volt stepdown transformer by closing three 100k fused cutouts at the riser pole. A voltage meter used to take readings on the ground was overloaded and failed, causing an arc flash. One of the employees in the bucket suffered first- and second-degree burns to both wrists, the face, the neck, and the ears and was hospitalized.
